4.1/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web
Serving as a commercial center for the past two millennia, Golden Horn occupies an estuary that separates the old city in the south from the more European north. Owing to its strategic location, the site witnessed a number of memorable historic occurrences and its sparkling beauty has been immortalized in paintings and poems throughout the centuries. Observe the ships and busy locals at this lively spot and walk along the bridge that connects the two sides. Take a break at one of the quaint cafes in the area.

  • The Horn of gold divided the area old of the modern. Full of tourist boats and passengers who cross from side to side and also toward the Asian side. Very busy. Recommend cross it walking across The Galata bridge (although I do not recommend eating in the restaurants of the bridge!).

  • Suggest Üsküdar, Karaköy and Eminönü small boats from the Golden Horn with a navigation. Rather, that seeing all over before the ship almost all of the Golden Horn of the pier on the Sea you can visit. This is a very nice experience, I suggest you do it and reviews. After that go down in one of the pier environment that's right for you. Another good alternative if your foot if you have footwear and good if you trust yourself, you can walk around the whole peninsula and a foot, tired of being on the ground, you can return the boat again. Experience in this, I think you will appreciate.

  • Even the lovely place the name of the Golden Horn. My personal favorite place of breakfast, lunch and dinner I've been visited by nightfall all the time looking at the landscape, it was the most beautiful place to go.

  • Let us be honest. The hotel is amazing. It's very nicely decorated. The staff are too friendly, welcoming and will help on each instant of your stay. I would recommend the suites since its on the top floor and will give you an amazing view with no much price difference, that would really make your stay worthy it.
  • The staff were very friendly especially the breakfast staff. Seckin and Sabina (Yasmin) were particularly very helpful.Though we faced a few problems with the air conditioning the customer service was excellent and any problems we faced they were solved straight away.the location of the hotel was perfect as the historical sites and many public transportations were very close to the hotel.We would recommend everyone to stay in the Golden Horn Hotel Sirkeci.
  • Good and helpful staff
  • it was verry good to stay again in this hotel
  • Very rude staff. But close to the historical district.
